Out again humming that same monotony knowing yet again that familiar feeling that torn chance dream held together by just that little bit by that tiny spec of something promised can you see it yeah well maybe you'll reach it one day along with that calm pool because in this pool it's sink or swim but you're caught doing the dead man's float i wish i could give you something different but i'm lying in the water face down beside you

    General Commenti love the intro to this song :D
    "it's 11:59 at radio three america this is uncle sam with music and the truth until dawn, right now we've got a few words for our brothers and sisters in the occupied zone, 'the chair is against the wall, the chair is against the wall. john has a long mustache, john has a long mustache.' it's 12 o clock americans another day closer to victory. and for all of you out there on and behind the lines this is your song"

    FD has some golden lyrics. Like that above. I love their related analogies. And also, about the 'wanna be emo' bands stated in the above post, I wouldnt call them emo really, but more, ahem, 'rock' bands?
